    Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    There is a thread that is for picking 10 must-sees in every park, but before that thread I didn't know that DAK and MGM had 10 attraction each(jk). So I decided to start a thread for the top 10 throughout the 4 WDW parks.

    Here's my list starting with the best and descending down. I have yet to ride Everest so I will reserve judgement.

    1. The Haunted Mansion
    2. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    5. Pirates of the Carribean (enough though it sucks compared to DL's.)
    6. Dinosaur (even though it pales in comparasion to DL's Indiana Jones Adventure.)
    7. Space Mountain
    8. Spaceship Earth
    9. Soarin'
    10. Peter Pan's Flight

    If Mr. Toad were still around it would probably be at or above #5.

    Thumbs up Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    Oh no, it's one of my favorite pastimes... list-making!

    Well let's start by park, and then narrow it down from there:

    Animal Kingdom
    Everest: The Wildest Ride In Nepal
    Finding Nemo: The Musical
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (specifically the last expedition of the day)

    Epcot
    Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
    Living with the Land
    Turtle Talk with Crush
    Mission: Space and Soarin' (except there's no re-ride-ability for me on these)
    [Excluding Spaceship Earth, my last visit found it in utter disrepair]

    Magic Kingdom
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Splash Mountain
    The Haunted Mansion
    Space Mountain
    Tomorrowland Transit Authority
    [Excluding Carousel of Progress. Either fix it, or put it out of its misery]

    Disney-MGM Studios
    The Hollywood Tower Hotel of Scariness
    Rock'n Roller Coaster starring Illeana Douglas

    Okay, so that's (alphabetically):

    Everest: The Wildest Ride In Nepal
    Finding Nemo: The Musical
    The Haunted Mansion
    The Hollywood Tower Hotel of Scariness
    Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
    Kilimanjaro Safaris (specifically the last expedition of the day)
    Living with the Land
    Mission: Space and Soarin' (except there's no re-ride-ability for me on these)
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Rock'n Roller Coaster starring Illeana Douglas
    Space Mountain
    Splash Mountain
    Tomorrowland Transit Authority
    Turtle Talk with Crush

    Damn. That's 15.

    Okay, going to eliminate Mission: Space and Soarin' because - while I love the technology - I would like new ride imagery.

    Down to 13.

    Didn't enjoy the Hollywood Tower Hotel on the last visit. It seems they've changed up the 'drop' sequence far too much for my liking. It's more like the Tumble-Dry Pontoon Boat of Terror now. More jerky than... well, drop-oriented. Pity, because there isn't a more beautiful queue in all of WDW.

    Down to 12.

    Since the removal of CM tour guides from Living with the Land, the majority of guests seem to now, well, gabfest to their hearts' content, making it the loudest ride in the wilderness.

    Guests suck.

    Down to 11.

    I gotta love Kilimanjaro Safaris, specifically right at closing time. But hey, what if my schedule didn't allow for that? Out it goes.

    Finally, 10. Now, how to rank them... Nostalgia? Detail? Individuality? Okay, so I'll dispense of the rhyme and reason. Here's the list:

    01. Everest: The Wildest Ride In Nepal
    02. Finding Nemo: The Musical
    03. Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
    04. Rock'n Roller Coaster starring Illeana Douglas
    05. Space Mountain
    06. Splash Mountain
    07. The Haunted Mansion
    08. Pirates of the Caribbean
    09. Turtle Talk with Crush
    10. Tomorrowland Transit Authority

    Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    In rough order of preference...

    1. Illuminations: Reflections of Earth
    2. Mission: Space
    3. Soarin' (a very, very close third to M:S)
    4. Festival of the Lion King
    5. Living Seas (especially before Nemo and Friends...less crowded back then)
    6. Spaceship Earth
    7. Expedition Everest
    8. Space Mountain
    9. TTA
    10. Tie: Haunted Mansion and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad

    Side note: If Horizons were still around, it would have definitely made the list.

    Side note 2: Due to there being so many decent attractions at WDW, this was a tough list to make!

    Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    It would be difficult for me to make a top 10 list without comparing it to DL. In the scope of WDW alone, yes Space Mountain and PoTC are good attractions.....until you see how good they could be in DL.

    Ok, so I'm gonna make two lists (in no particular order).

    For the person who has not been to Disneyland:

    1. Expedition Everest
    2. Dinosaur
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Space Mountain
    5. Soarin'
    6. Pirates of the Caribbean
    7. Tower of Terror
    8. Rock n' Roller Coaster
    9. Mission: Space
    10. Test Track


    For the person who has been to Disneyland:

    1. Expedition Everest
    2. Dinosaur
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Test Track
    5. Mission: Space
    6. Rock n' Roller Coaster
    7. Mickey's Philharmagic
    8. "it's a small world" (for new updates, not facade)
    9. The Seas With Nemo and Friends (attraction)
    10. Finding Nemo: The Musical




    Ok wait!!! I have to make my personal Top 10 list!!!!!!

    1. Expedition Everest
    2. Dinosaur
    3. World Showcase (especially Canada)
    4. Mickey's Philharmagic
    5. Splash Mountain
    6. The Seas With Nemo and Friends
    7. Festival of the Lion King/Finding Nemo: The Musical
    8. Illuminations
    9. The Great Movie Ride
    10. Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage

    Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    Quite hard to only pick only 10 attractions to list for the whole Resort...

    1) Expedition Everest
    2) Mission Space
    3) Kilimanjaro Sarfari's
    4) Splash Mountain
    5) Illuminations
    6) Soarin
    7) Great Movie Ride
    8) Dinosaur
    9) Splash Mountain
    10) Wishes

    I'm just listing these of the top of my head and I've not included many Magic Kingdom attractions simply because there are suppier versions out there at other parks!

    Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    Judging by visit earlier this month. I didn't go on Soarin'. Line was way too long and I'm always at DCA.

    1. Expedition Everest
    2. Rock N Rollercoaster
    3. Splash Mountain
    4. Test Track
    5. Philharmagic
    6. Mission Space
    7. Tower of Terror
    8. Big Thunder Mountain
    9. The Safari (blanking on the name and too tired to look it up).
    10. Kali River Rapids

    ok, now THE WORST!

    1. Tiki Room: Under New Management
    2. The Haunted Mansion
    3. The Maelstrom
    4. Space Ship Earth
    5. Space Mountain
    6. Carousel of Progress (Sadly, this is one of my favorites, but it's just turned to CRAP! I really needs some TLC).
    7. MILF
    8. Country Bears (Only because I grew up with the Vacation Hoedown of DL, that show is just so much better than the original).
    9. Innoventions
    10. Haunted Mansion (again, UTTER CRAP! I hope this refurb brings it up to DLR quality).

    In no particular order:

    Expedition Everest
    Kilimanjaro Safari's
    Test Track
    The Seas with Nemo and Friends (Like it better than the subs actually)
    Space Ship Earth
    Mission: Space
    Tower of Terror
    Mickey's Philharmagic
    Splash Mountain
    Haunted Mansion

    Haven't done Nemo show at AK, will be doing that in October. Rock N' Roller Coaster fell out of the top 10 due to the really rough and painful ride I had on it last month. I mean ... OUCH.

    Re: Top 10 attractions throughout WDW

    I tried not to read everyone's lists so mine was "fresh"

    Let's see....


    1. Spaceship Earth
    2. Pirates
    3. Haunted Mansion
    4. Tower of Terror
    5. Expedition Everest
    6. TTA
    7. Splash Mountain
    8. Soarin'
    9. Philharmagic
    10. MuppetVision 3D

    I'm sure I will rethink this over and over...but there's the list as it stands right now.
